The role of Notaries in Scotland is expanding with increasing demand for both commercial and individual purposes, due to increasing European and worldwide trade and personal mobility.
Our Solicitor Sophia Wagner is also a Notary Public registered with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in Milton Keynes and as such is able to prepare, attest, authenticate and certify (for use anywhere in the world), deeds and other documents, under the signature and official seal of the Notary, to make them acceptable as proof of the matters attested or confirmed by the Notary, to the public or judicial authorities in the country where they are to be used.
We can also arrange to have documents legalised with an Apostille by the FCO and if necessary sent on to be processed at the relevant foreign Embassy in London.
A Notary mainly acts as an impartial and legally trained witness to authenticate and certify the execution of deeds and documents required or intended for use outside the UK. Notarial functions include:
- Attesting the execution of documents
- Certifying the genuineness of copy documents, signatures and execution of documents
- Administration of oaths and declarations
- Powers of attorney
A Notary holds an office and status which is recognised internationally. Our charges are based on the work carried out in each particular case and our policy is to estimate the full cost of the service in advance so that the charges are known at the outset.
